Code: PCC/20/1290 Analysis Made Easy

How to record analytically and write cracking assessments!
All too often social care assessments lack structure and are unclear, unfocused and repetitive. This means the message and impact are weakened or lost. When writing assessments and support plans we need to do so in a clear, concise, relevant and meaningful way.

And that means taking the reader (whoever that may be) with us every step of the way. We simply need to convince them that we know what we are talking about and are worth listening to.

All too frequently, writing is mainly narrative and descriptive. There is a lot of information and a lot of facts. But we need to make sense of those facts and that information. What do they tell us? Why do they tell us that? What should we do as a consequence of that? Use the evidence to form your thinking.

This course will help you understand how analytical writing requires you to assess the weight that should be given to information gathered. To do this we will show you how to draw on your knowledge from research, experience and practice.

We will show you how to combine this with an understanding of the service user, carer or child’s needs within their family or the context in which they live.

The  training session to give participants an overall understanding of how the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (“DoLS”) apply to their day-to-day work settings.

Code: PCC/20/903 Direct Work with Children Affected by Child Sexual Abuse (3 DAY COURSE)

Course Overview

Recent research by the NSPCC indicates that many children who have been sexually abused, or who live in families where sexual abuse has happened, do not get access to therapeutic work during or after any investigation or Court process. The reasons for this vary from not having appropriate local services, not meeting eligibility criteria, not wanting any support or confusion as to what such work might entail.
This training aims to consider the needs of children and young people who are not accessing formal therapy or counselling but who might still benefit from some input to help them better understand their experiences. It seeks to help social workers utilise their existing direct work skills and learn new ones to help enhance their communication with children about sexual abuse and provide educational input and therapeutic messages to help with their recovery. Participants will receive a copy of the trainer’s Staying Safe Programme Manual containing direct work ideas and worksheets they can use.

This course is not intended to focus on direct work with children with severe learning disabilities or severe communication difficulties.This course is for Practitioners working directly with families where child sexual abuse has occurred. The course has an emphasis on FOCUSED-POST INVESTIGATION WORK FOR SOCIAL WORKERS and it is desirable for participants to have attended the 2-day training: Communicating with and undertaking Direct Work with Children and Young People and/or Direct Work with Children for Single Assessments prior to this course; but not essential.
